NDC parliamentary aspirant for the Ayawaso West Wougon Constituency, John Dumelo has vowed to wrestle the seat from the grips of the NPP.
The actor and entrepreneur last Saturday won with a resounding victory during the party’s internal elections and believes his next step is to win the parliamentary elections in a constituency that has predominantly been won by the ruling NPP.
Speaking in an interview on Citi TV, the actor said he is a young man and shares in the problems of the youth insisting that he speaks their language.
Dumelo has a herculean task to overcome if he wishes to win the seat as he will need to close a 10,000 vote margin from the 2016 polls.
“I’m a young man an entrepreneur, I’m a businessman and I see what businessmen go through I see students who finish school and are looking for jobs are looking for ways to make their lives better go through a lot.
“And so I feel that me getting there will be able to help me solve their problem since we speak the same language” he stressed.
